10 Experiences That Every Black Nerd Can Relate To

Aaron Barksdale of the HuffPost Black Voices has posted a list of 10 Experiences That Every Black Nerd Can Relate To. I think these are pretty much true for anyone who isn’t a straight white male nerd, so I thought I would post it here for your amusement.

    1. I’m 1-6, 9, 10.  I want to add one more to the list.

      11. When you end up creating your own crew from siblings, relatives and their friends.

      Number 3 is true to an extent, because I find that most geeks/nerds had one or both parents who were geeks themselves. It was that influence that started it off.  Both my parents were geeks in their own way and taught me to think outside the box. Yet still every once in a while they would give me a look and just shake their heads….. maybe they were having flashbacks
